Outright Games, has joined Digital Schoolhouse as a new partner in their initiative to help grow the grassroots of UK computing and diversify the pool of talent within the video games industry.
The first step in this new partnership will be Part-Baked Games: Chef’s Edition a two part, live online workshop taking place on Tuesday 12th May & Friday 15th May at 11am-12pm. This has been developed in partnership with Outright Games and introduces students to the concept of prototyping; both on paper and digitally. Inspired by the recently launched video game Gigantosaurus, based on the world of the hugely popular CGI animated show “Gigantosaurus” currently airing its 1st season on Disney Junior worldwide, learners begin by creating a paper prototype for their own version of Gigantosaurus and then a digital prototype based on these ideas.
Free live workshops are the latest in a series of creative resources for fun and out-of-the-box Computing at home, all aimed at making lives easier for those looking to expand their learning while not able to attend schools. Join computing teacher Estelle, as she guides your little learners through a full-length Computer Science workshop in two digestible parts. Parents and carers are welcome to join in or sit back (relax!) and supervise nearby.
Outright Games is an industry leader, well known for its work in creating family friendly, blockbuster video games that include ‘Jumanji: The Video Game’, ‘Ice Age Scrat’s Nutty Adventure’, ‘Dragons: Dawn of New Riders’ and ‘Paw Patrol: On a Roll’.
“Our partnership with Outright Games will enable us to deliver some incredible workshops with some really exciting content for our pupils to explore,” said Shahneila Saeed, Digital Schoolhouse’s Programme Director. “We’ve been blown away by the reach and impact of workshops such as Machine Code Mario and Just Dance with the Algorithm, so we’re really looking forward to seeing how these resources will further engage our primary pupils with computing.”
“Our aim with every game we create is to entertain families through high quality titles that are based on the biggest entertainment franchises in the world,” said Stephanie Malham COO of Outright Games. ‘This partnership with Digital Schoolhouse makes more sense than any other we’ve undertaken as we will be helping to support the education of children in the UK. We are very excited to base these first activities around our newest title ‘Gigantosaurus: The Game’ and for it to become an integral part of these new educational workshops.”
